Janice Juraska


Dr. Juraska and her students examine hormonal influences on neuronal structure across the lifespan. Their emphasis is on cognitive parts of the rat brain, such as the cerebral cortex, corpus callosum and hippocampus, and on cognitive behavior. Her current projects are on the neural and behavioral changes during puberty and adolescence and the effects of endocrine disruptors (BPA, phthalates) on the early development of the nervous system and behavior. Dr. Juraska's complete bio can be found here.
